Over seven years, The Lost Brothers have released four highly acclaimed albums that show the influence of songwriters such as Van Morrison and Paul McCartney. Their singular capacity to combine well-hewn melodies, compelling lyrics and beautiful harmonies has seen this duo packing out Irish and British venues. New Songs Of Dawn And Dust, their latest album, was designated Radio 1 Album Of The Week by RTE. They have been championed by the likes of Richard Hawley and Brendan Benson. Last year, they toured the US and Europe with Glen Hansard and were named one of the festival highlights at SXSW in Texas.

“Songcraft… Pure and lonesome” (**** The Irish Times)
“Compelling… Something special” (The Guardian)
“The Lost Brothers’ harmonies are to die for, as near as a duo have got to the mastery of The Everlys’ and The Louvin Brothers’ tender close-harmony singing I've heard anywhere near these shores.” (Richard Hawley)
